Installation: Cannot connect to the download server

Each time that I try to download Skype on another computer, I get an error message after it's done downloading saying that Skype cannot connect to the download server. Then I am given an option to try an alternate file but that does not work either. I've tried on Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome. Is there anything else that I can do?

I've tried that too. The Full version is the alternate file that I have the option of trying, but it still does not work and I get the same error message.

Re: Installation: Cannot connect to the download server

Please click the "Get Skype" link at the top of this page and download the normal version of Skype, NOT the beta version to get this new version.

 

Any difference?

Using your Windows Control Panel, please do:

 

Internet Options -> Delete -> Delete

 

Then please try again with the download using a IE ("Internet Explorer") web browser window.
